So far, it has been a rainy December and January in Los Angeles, as well as all of Southern California. More rain on the way.

I cannot believe all this rain in LA

Yes, I don't know where we are at for this season but I'd sure welcome a warm, dry 75 degree weekend at this point. Yes, I know, we "need" the rain. But I'd like a little balance......

The average annual rainfall for Downtown Los Angeles is approx. 15 inches per year (and remember the rain typically all falls between Oct/Nov. to April/May each year).

But we have some big UPs and DOWNs varying from that average. Here's the last ten years of annual rainfall at the LA Civic Center (Source: Ntl Weather Service). Most recent data I could find. All numbers in INCHES.

DOWNTOWN LA - Annual Rainfall (INCHES)
07-08: 13.5
06-07: 3.2
05-06: 13.1
04-05: 37.9
03-04: 9.2
02-03: 16.4
01-02: 4.4
00-01: 17.9
99-00: 11.5
98-99: 9.0
97-98: 31.0

Thanks for the graph, Fontucky. So we're a bit ahead of the curve so far.... I wonder if it'll keep up.

Yeah, these recent rain storms were just what we needed. I'll be happy anytime they come because it helps calm down my allergies. But once the sun and dry weather comes back my allergies get aggravated again. I've already sneezed several times this morning. And the rain helps break up the monotony of the same old dry, sunny conditions that last for MONTHS. I don't understand how anyone can say that they honestly love dry sunny weather that lasts for months because it does get old after a while. Even San Francisco doesn't get this many sunny days. Yes, I know that by next week we are warming up into the mid 70s and its only February Imagine what the weather will be in July and August. Anyway, I think the rain is FAR better than these constant dry sunny days

i love being active outdoors so i'd take the warm and dry climate 365 days a year if it didn't mean being stuck in a drought. even if i don't go outside everyday, the thought of being cooped up indoors is extremely frustrating. to each his/her own though. if you like the rain, this winter has certainly been good to you.

Wow, I thought it was suppose to get real cold? That snow in the San Gabriels is melting fast. This winter is a total wimp but glad that California is recovering from the drought!
